A huge thank you from us to Mel for coming in to visit us today. Mel shared with us some of her father’s professional art work and showed us how to create some illustrations. She even created us a drawing mascot who we gave the name ‘Marshmallow’.
Before Mel left she asked us to look carefully at Vincent Van Gogh’s 1888 ‘Sunflowers’. This afternoon, the children loved recreating drawings of sunflowers in vases.
Thank you Mel for being such a great inspiration to our children.
Oliver has once again been doing some fantastic home learning over half term. He has explored Thorne and taken photographs. He has then compared his modern day photographs to old images of the same place. If you would like to take a look at Oliver’s home learning, it is proudly displayed in our classroom. Well done Oliver!
Faith has been so so brave over half term after several visits to hospital. Here is Faith with her bravery awards. Well done Faith for being a superstar! I am very proud of you!
Dan the builder came to visit the KS1 children last week to talk about how houses and other buildings are made. He talked about the different materials needed to create a house and what they were each used for. All of the children and staff loved his visit and found out lots of interesting facts. Thank you Dan for taking time to visit us!
If you can tell your teacher something you learnt from Dan or an interesting fact about materials used to build a house, you will be rewarded with 10 house points!
Dante and Dexter worked so hard to use their phonics to write sentences with the ‘oa’ digraph. They remembered to include capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Well done boys! Excellent phonics work!
Oliver has been litter picking this week to tidy up our town using his Grandad’s litter picker. Oliver then created some beautiful posters to advertise keeping Thorne clean and tidy. Well done Oliver! I’m so proud of you!
